The Southeast Asian Cerambycid subfamily Parandrinae is undergoing a general revision and is currently being studied by a South American entomologist, Antonio Santos-Silva. From a previous post, wherein I first emailed images, I eventually sent seven specimens from my collection through Dan Heffern, and the feedback? VERY GOOD NEWS!
All are new to Science and belongs to two species (figured here) of which five specimens is the latest addition that will bring Philippine Parandrinae to seven new species. As these came from me, the author will name it in my honor. AHEM.
I’m just too excited.
